Great tater tots without slaving in the kitchen.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- salt to taste
- 1 quart oil for deep frying
Place potato cubes into a food processor, and process until the potatoes are finely shredded, and some of the starch has been incorporated. Sprinkle with salt, and form the potato mixture into balls the size of a quarter. The starch will hold them together.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Drop the balls carefully into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown. Remove from deep-fryer to drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
